This book provides a solid foundation in basic biochemistry and the essential role of medical biochemistry in understanding health and disease. It helps students connect molecular events with the human body’s structure and function in both health and illness.
It introduces the concept of Early Clinical Exposure (ECE), aligning with the latest curriculum adopted by National Medical Commission (NMC). It includes case studies with questions and answers, offering a practical approach to learning medical biochemistry. It aims to equip the medical students with the knowledge needed for safe and effective work in a biochemistry laboratory from day one.
It will also be useful as a standard textbook of biochemistry for students of nursing, dentistry, physiotherapy, biotechnology, biomedical sciences, ayurveda and undergraduate and postgraduate students of biochemistry.
✔ Comprehensive Content: Comprises 20 chapters and 24 practicals, offering a well-rounded approach to theory and practical medical biochemistry.
✔ Varied Question Types: It includes a range of question formats, including MCQs, long answers, short answers, table viva voce, practical viva voce, and case study-based questions, promoting a thorough understanding of the subject.
✔ Visual Learning: Presented in full-color printing, the book features 20 chapters with colourful illustrations and tables that enhance comprehension and aid in effective learning.
✔ Practical Emphasis: Chapters 19 and 20 focus on biochemistry practicals and follow MCI guidelines. Chapter “Medical biochemistry laboratory basic requirements, principles and procedures” covers laboratory essentials, techniques, mathematics, and safety.
✔ Clinical Relevance: Chapter 20 provides laboratory experiments with clinical significance, normal ranges, patient instructions, specimen types, collection methods
